The Dead Family Diaz by P.J. Bracegirdle

This is a summary of a story about family, fiestas, and friendship.  It has colorful illustrations.  My students enjoyed the book.

The Family Diaz was going to celebrate the Day of the Dead at the the Land of the Living. The living humans were friends with the Family Diaz.They used an elevator to get to the Land of the Living. On their way there Angelito got lost and meet Pablo, who was wearing a skull mask. They both ran away from a parade and  when they stopped and saw each others faces. Pablo realizedthat Angelito was a real skeleton, and Angelito discovered Pablo was a real boy. They both screamed and ran away from each other. Angelito found the cemetery where his family was celebrating at a Dia de los Muertos party. Angelito saw  Pablo and they decide to scare Estrelita, Angelito’s sister. Then the Family Diaz goes home and Angelito had a sweet dream.
